Tourbillon Watches

*/?>

Tourbillon watches have, since the end of the 18th century, represented the absolute pinnacle of horological ingenuity and craftsmanship. Invented by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1795, the tourbillon was designed to counteract the effects of gravity on the delicate parts of the mechanical movement. With the introduction of new materials and watchmaking methods however, the tourbillon is not as necessary for accuracy as it once was. Despite this though, they are still highly sought after by collectors and are widely produced by prestigious Swiss brands. Many new innovations for the tourbbreguet-twin-tourbillon-2illon have arisen in recent decades, including watches with multiple tourbillons.

  • True Swiss tourbillon watches commonly sell for over $100,000 today and are still considered to be among the most beautiful watch complications available
  • Don’t be fooled by cheap alternatives or Chinese models, they lack the craftsmanship and integrity of the handmade Swiss pieces

Servicing a tourbillon complication requires the utmost attention to detail and must only be preformed by the most highly trained watchmakers available.
